A somewhat detailed example of how 4 stroke engines work. Enjoy :tup:

The thumbnail is exciting me. But I can't download it right now because I'm on a computer that dont run Algodoo... :(
That's no good :(
So this is where you were, squirrel! Pretty cool scene man! ^-^
Ive just been taking a break from algodoo and my computer in general. I'll start making scenes regularly again soon :lol:
Maybe I should make something like this. I think this thing is totally impractical IRL because it has far too many parts all moving in different directions. But I'm just thinking, who in hell figured this out!?
Holy cow, pnvv! That's like a Wankel engine on steroids, with a bunch of extra parts thrown in for good measure! :lol:
lethalsquirrel - Very nice job on the scene! :tup: I didn't realize how complex the driving mechanism was until I highlighted the entire scene and then saw all those timing gears and stretched axles! WOW! :o

BTW - I rated it a 10.

Thanks Xray. I had to cheat a bit with the timing because the chains in algodoo suck so I used hidden gears instead :yum:

Pnvv - I think Ive seen that engine on youtube before. There was a demonstration of it running on compressed air.
I haven't even downloaded this scene yet and I'm already hyped up about it! I'll probably give a 10 once I do download it. Due to it being another fine piece of lethalsquirrel engineering I don't see how it could get anything lower _o_ :tup:

thanks pnvv.
I could say the same about your scenes honestly
Well done. :tup: :tup: My only suggestion would be to remove the clouds and maybe darken the background.
If you have a C-gear phobia, don't download this... :lol: :tup:

I gave a 10 BTW :D
What's wrong with C-gears? :P
Nothing. There's just a lot of them in this scene xD
yeah they are kind unnecessary. I realized after I made them I could just make the cams spin at half the speed of the crank with hinge motors but whatevs.
Awesome as always! I'd get rid of the "somewhat simple" part. it's one of the most complete demos in Algobox ;)
I suppose your'e right. It's just that I forgot some important things like the distributor, the coolant channels, water pump and stuff like that.
Yeah I kept thinking "why not use bendTarget or something?"
can you make the cams spin at a 2:1 ratio in relation to the crank with bend target?
Its a LOT better than the little boxer engine I'm working on.

What you called 'pushrod' is actually a 'connecting rod'.

Pushrods were used on engines before they started using chains or belts to spin the camshafts.

Very nice artwork! Thanks.:tup:
Silent Bender - Sorry, but your definition of a push-rod is not correct.
Push rod definition: "A rod in an overhead-valve engine that is part of the linkage used to open and close the valves."

It has nothing to do with whether chains or belts are used to spin the cam shaft.

ahhh crap you're right. I knew it was a connecting rod )|(
I fixed it.

Regarding "can you make the cams spin at a 2:1 ratio in relation to the crank with bend target?".

See Transmission Hinge. Set _ratio = 2.0.
Awesome! Thanks s_noonan :)
Nice, but you could add some effects. This model is better
looks soooo realistic. OMG
U need to know the bumb part on cranksaft it was a balancing device. the weight of it same as whole piston part
